Presence is just how much high end your amp limits. As you roll it up, it'll sound like it's coming near you face or a blanket is thrown off of it. It wouldn't make a big difference unless you are playing loudly. Paul Gilbert use it to complement his treble.

It takes very high frequencies out of the negative feedback loop from the output transformer as you turn it up.
What that means to you is that at low settings, you reduce the spikiness of the high treble response. When you turn it higher, you get less regulation of the highs and the amp becomes brighter and cuts better. You're probably not noticing much of a difference because usually the power amp needs to be pushed at least a little bit into clipping to hear the effect. From your setup I'd guess you have the master pretty low and are using a lot of preamp volume, so your presence knob won't do much for you.

this amp doesnt have a master volume actually, lol. but yeah, i guess it isnt a big deal witht eh presence, 5/10 should be fine.
